I should mention that my goal race is 100 miles.
I will be pacing my girlfriend for her first 100 mile attempt 14 weeks out from my goal race. I’m doing the Mike Foote Big Vert plan, and I was already running 60-70 miles per week average roughly 6 weeks prior to starting the plan. I can either pace her for 25 miles or 50 miles. Assuming I will be in Z2 the entire time, would there be any benefit or detriment to my own training if I do 50 miles? Bad idea? It’s a relatively flat race and I would end up with 2700 feet of gain over 50. How should I adjust my training before and after her race?
